APSPCB collects water samples from Panyor for turbidity analysis

ITANAGAR, Feb 16: A team of scientists and environmental engineers from the Arunachal Pradesh State Pollution Control Board (APSPCB) on Saturday collected water samples from the Panyor (Ranganadi) river in Lower Subansiri district for turbidity analysis.
The collected samples will be sent to Guwahati-based National Accreditation Board for Testing and Calibration Laboratories for analysis and measurement of water turbidity, said an APSPCB release.
The river water downstream of the NEEPCO’s hydropower project in Yazali has turned extremely turbid after the annual maintenance work on the Ranganadi Hydro Electric project started on 9 February, resulting in the death of countless fishes.
